Randy Shanks will offer a special presentation at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 26, in Plaster Hall’s Cornell Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University.

Shanks, who graduated from Missouri Southern in 1985 with a degree in marketing and management, is the vice president of sales for Nutra Blend’s North American market. Having served in that role since 2002, he has developed an industry-leading marketing department, rebuilt the customer service department to focus on customer loyalty and helped the company significantly increase their profits.

Shanks’ presentation will combine humor with what he has learned about succeeding in the business field, recapping his experience and offering real-world lessons to what students are learning in the classroom. It is free and open to the public.
